SOLO SHOWSAWARDS 

Runo Lagomarsino awarded the 2019 Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Prize 2019

Runo Lagomarsino awarded the 2019 Friends of Moderna Museet Sculpture Prize 2019. In occasion of the award, Lagomarsino will have a solo exhibition at Moderna Museet running from November 12 - December 22, 2019. ⁠

“Runo Lagomarsino is an artist whose works offer a multifaceted picture of what working with sculpture can include. With careful attention to the material, but without ever ignoring its conceptual aspect, Lagomarsino shapes his narrative, acutely aware of the significance of political positionings. He oscillates between temporalities and identities and perceives art as a unit of time and space in a historic context. A sentence written on a baggage carousel, sand poured out in front of a Greek sculpture at a museum, material confronted with a colonial past. In his practice, Lagomarsino incorporates power and geography, mythology and national identity, objects and memories, invisible situations and opportunities for diverse dialogue.” - The Jury ⁠
 
 

GROUP SHOWS 

SUPERFLEX will be participating in the group exhibition 'Living in the Present Future' at Bornholms Kunstmuseum

SUPERFLEX will be participating in the group exhibition 'Living in the Present Future' at Bornholms Kunstmuseum. 

Created in collaboration with the National Museum in Stettin, Poland, the exhibition will feature a wide range of both Polish and Danish contemporary art.⁠
 
The exhibition focuses on what it means to be human in both the present and future. We live in a time when the influence of human civilization on the Earth is so significant that it has been identified as geological epoch called the Anthropocene, meaning ‘the time of man’. Now, we may be transitioning away from this ‘time of man’ and into a new epoch, wherein the boundaries between the environment, humans, and technology are increasingly challenged, and their relationships rapidly hybridising.⁠
 
SUPERFLEX will be participating in the exhibition with their work We Are All In The Same Boat. Presenting the familiar phrase as an LED light sign reminiscient of a commercial billboard, the work invites the viewer to reflect upon our present role in a world of escalating climate change and an apocalyptic human future while imagining a future world of lively, diverse and perhaps even humanlike lifeforms.⁠
 
The exhibition will run from 06.10.2019 - 05.01.2020

SUPERFLEX are a part of the long running exhibition 'Being Human' at the Wellcome Collection, London, UK with their work 'Flooded McDonald' (2009)

'Flooded McDonald's is a short film work in which a convincing life-size replica of a McDonald's burger bar gradually floods with water. Furniture is lifted up by the water, trays of food and drinks start to float around, electrics short circuit and eventually the space is completely submerged. The film is devoid of exaggerated disaster-film drama and intentionally resists categorisation as a documentary or as an art film. Flooded McDonald's hints at the consumer-driven power and influence and impotence of large multinational companies in the face of climate change, questioning with whom ultimate responsibility lies. Flooded McDonalds was first exhibited at South London Gallery in 2009.' - SUPERFLEX 

The exhibition runs from 05.09.2019 - 30.09.2021

GROUP SHOWS 

SUPERFLEX are participatng in the exhibition 'Unquiet Harmony: The Subject of Displacement' at Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska

SUPERFLEX are participatng in the exhibition 'Unquiet Harmony: The Subject of Displacement' at Sheldon Museum of Art, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE, USA with their video work 'Kwassa Kwassa' (2015)

'Kwassa Kwassa is a film work by SUPERFLEX portraying the construction of a boat on the island of Anjouan, in the Comoro archipelago between Madagasgar and Mozambique. Although usually used for fishing, boats like the one built in the film are in many cases also used for transporting migrants to the neighbouring island of Mayotte, a French oversea territory and the outermost region of the EU. The islands are 70 km apart – separated by a seemingly short, but life-threatening journey that has claimed more than 10,000 lives of women, men and children. Kwassa Kwassa interprets the boat as a contextual construction intended to carry migrants on a dangerous, politically complex journey. Carrying more than symbolic meaning as a vessel for dreams of reaching a better life on the other shore, the boat is also a labor-intensive work of craftsmanship and the physical passage bearing human lives to safety – as the title questions in translation “an unstable boat” from the language of the Comoro Islands.' - SUPERFLEX

The exhibition will run from 09.08.2019 - 31.12.2019
